Nothing I want is out of my reach


Bobby Minio

Recommended Posts

The scene opens on the familiar setting of a hotel bathroom. Steam rolls through the air, the large wall length mirror is fogged to a matte blur. On the counter-top beside the sink sits a docked iPhone, playing Kenny Loggins' perennial jam, "I'm Free".

 

 

The master of measured responses on the mic, the One Man Revolution, Bobby Minio, steps to the counter, his hair wet and heavy as it rests on his face, with a towel wrapped around him at the waist. He leans forward, wiping away the fog on the mirror to create a window of reflection. As he stares himself in the eyes, disdain stares back, but only for a moment. He blinks, the look disappearing with the steam.

 

His facial hair has grown in heavily since his loss to the man who's Netflix queue is currently filled with past seasons of Sons of Anarchy, Sid Harrison. Minio sizes himself up for a second, lifting his chin and turning side to side. He reaches down, bringing up a razor. Over the next few moments, he artfully styles his facial hair, cutting away the excess scruff leaving only pronounced chops on either side of his face, a thick mustache, and a strip down his chin. He lets out a long sigh as he stares down at the aftermath, small piles of discarded hair all around the sink, the counter, and the bathroom floor.

 

After a moment of internal deliberation, Minio decides to leave the mess for the house keepers of the hotel. #RealHeel. He stands tall in front of the mirror again, staring at himself, his eyes looking towards the top of his head as the chorus of the song kicks up again.

"Heaven helps the man who fights his fear. Love's the only thing that keeps me here! I'm free!"

 

Minio's hands grip the edge of the counter as he leans closer to the mirror. He steadies his breath, he is psyching himself up. There is a drastic change coming, a change that causes much turmoil internally for the mouthpiece of the revolution. He continues to battle the inner war in his head.

 

"You're the reason that I'm hanging on, my heart's staying where my heart belongs! I'm free!"

 

Finally, gathering motivation from Kenny's inspirational lyrics, Minio takes a deep breath, holding it in his lungs tightly as his hand searches for the appropriate instrument for his big decision. He finds it, and forces his hands to close around the object. His eyes slowly close before locking down as tight as the breath in his chest as his hand raises the item to his hair.

 

He gulps deeply, swallowing whatever hesitation he has left, and he makes the move.

 

Bobby Minio: "All or nothing. No turning back now."

 

He says to himself to steel his resolve. His hand reaches the front of his hair, and pushes through. That is right, fans. Bobby Minio has combed his bangs back and out of his face. Each brush through becomes more confident, more comfortable. After a moment, his eyes open, his hair has been brushed out of his face. He takes a long look, before sighing again.

 

He stops the MP3 player, gathering his belongings in the bathroom before stopping to take one more look in the mirror. His gaze lingers. This is the new look Minio. All or nothing. No turning back now.

 

He turns toward the door, preparing to finish getting ready for TV later in the evening.

Until we got to that last word in this paragraph, I definitely thought you were reaching for a gun and I was like "OMFG!" (which I think is what you wanted us to be thinking.... right?) I'm excited to see the new look.

I was kinda going for the fake out that he was going to do something more serious like buzz or bic his hair but I definitely enjoy that people might think he's just going to blow his brains out.
